Description by the author

This 38 km long cycle route first leads through Clapham Common, one of the larger London parks, and past the lovely center of Clapham. Then it goes through Wandsworth Common and along the green belt around the Wandle, a tributary of the Thames. Via the village of Wimbledon you cycle through two of the largest parks in the agglomeration: Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park. Richmond park is nearly a thousand hectares and the largest walled city park in Europe. It is known for the herds of deer that live freely. You also get a few grand panoramas over London and the green surroundings. Finally, the majestic Thames takes you back to Clapham Junction via Kew Gardens, the idyllic Barnes village, the London Wetlands and Battersea village. The vast majority of this route is car-free.
